Gov’t has major plans for Albouystown – Minister Indar
– outreach with Minister Ramson planned
President Dr. Mohamed Irfaan Ali will soon announce major developmental plans for the Albouystown community, said Minister within the Ministry of Public Works, Deodat Indar, M.P.
Minister Indar made the announcement during a meeting in the community on Saturday after residents raised a number of issues affecting the community.
“There is something significant planned for this area that the President himself will announce … I will defer that to the President, but you do not worry about works and so, that will come here, do not worry about it,” Minister Indar stated.
Some of the issues raised include the need for better roads, a safe space for children to utilise, and street lights for better security. With that, the Minister further disclosed that he, along with Minister of Culture, Youth and Sport Charles Ramson M.P will soon be having an outreach in community.
“His Excellency, President Dr. Irfaan Ali asked myself and Minister Charles Ramson to come to this community to do a full outreach. This is not a full outreach. I just came to give some kites and some of the elder folks some hampers for the Easter weekend. I am coming back with Minister Ramson to do a full outreach to deal with all of these matters systematically,” he said.
The minister also committed to installing street lights in the community, but called on residents to keep an eye out for persons who would want to vandalise them. A commitment was also made by Minister Indar to donate sports gear to the ‘Pace and Power’ boxing gym in the community which has 25 members.
Following the meeting, Minister Indar distributed a number of food hampers to the elderly, and kites to the children for the Easter holiday.
